Ginger Carrot Soup

Two Mountain Riesling is not sweet, but rather very fruity with nice acidity. The brightness of the wine, floral aromatics, and the crisp mouthfeel compliment the spice of the ginger and onion, while balancing the depth of the carrots and the freshness of the cilantro. The two together make for a perfect combination of end of summer and beginning of fall flavors.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 lb carrots, chopped
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 Inch ginger, peeled
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1⁄4 cup pepitas

DIRECTIONS:

  • Cook carrots and onion in olive oil until tender.
  • Add ginger & broth and bring to a boil.
  • Once carrots are fork tender, purée with an immersion blender, or in a blender in batches. Top with cilantro and pepitas.
  • Serve with slightly chilled glass of Two Mountain Riesling!

CRISP WINE STYLE

Nestled in the Rattlesnake Hills within the Yakima Valley wine region of Washington state. Two Mountain Winery and vineyard is a family-owned operation that produces approachable, handcrafted wines that are worth saving for that special occasion, but are accessibly priced for a casual dinner with family and friends. Brothers Matthew and Patrick Rawn own and operate the winery and estate vineyard, overseeing every aspect of the winemaking process from the grapes to the glass.

This wine is an off-dry style Riesling with hints of hay, green pear, wild flowers and dust on the nose. These characteristics combine with incredible flavors of ripe citrus, green apple, and a hint of minerality. This wine lasts forever on your tongue and makes you remember why summer is so great!
